  • Measurements of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K using gamma spectrometry to assess a first-order exposure risk for residents of Western Haryana, India

    The measurements of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K using gamma spectrometry and measurements of radon concentration and exhalation rates using solid-state nuclear track (LR-115, Type-II plastic) detectors were used to assess a first-order exposure risk for people residing in the Fatehbad and Hissar districts in Western Haryana, India. The concentrations of radium, thorium and potassium in the soil samples ...

  • The effective dose to the public of Kerman province from gamma emitter terrestrial radionuclides

    The concentration of the most important terrestrial radionuclides in soil that constitute significant components of the background exposure source of the population, such as 238U, 232Th and 40K, were measured by gamma spectrometry in 58 surface soil samples in Kerman province, Iran. The average activity concentrations were found to be 23.8 ± 3.6, 28.8 ± 4.3 and 489.6 ± 48.9 Bq kg−1, respectively. ...

  • Distribution, characterization, and exposure of MC252 oil in the supratidal beach environment

    The distribution and characteristics of MC252 oil:sand aggregates, termed surface residue balls (SRBs), were measured on the supratidal beach environment of oil‐impacted Fourchon Beach in Louisiana (USA). Probability distributions of 4 variables, surface coverage (%), size of SRBs (mm2 of projected area), mass of SRBs per m2 (g/m2), and concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) ...

  • Radiation doses due to natural radioactivity in the Afra hot springs, Jordan

    This paper briefly reports some data from investigations carried out in the Afra hot springs, 160 km south of Amman, Jordan. These data emphasise the new findings of high-radiation dose equivalents, mainly to identify the potential and known impacts of exposure on public health in High Levels of Natural Radiation Areas (HLNRAs) of this region, and also to make recommendations for further studies. ...

  • Ionising Radiation

    Introduction The energy level of some types of radiation is high enough so that when they interact with matter they cause the formation of electrically charged particles or ion-pairs and break molecular bonds. These so-called ionising radiations are by their nature potentially harmful to life; at high doses they can be lethal and at lower doses can cause genetic damage. Ionising radiation occurs ...

  • Non-Ionising Radiation

    Pressures on the environment may occur through chemical, physical and biological agents. The subject of this study is physical agents, where physical fields are examined. Physical fields are part of the natural environment. Depending upon their properties and the surrounding conditions, physical fields are transmitted through the spaces in which we live, potentially affecting human health and ...

  • Home, Sweet Wastewater Building

    How can a wastewater treatment plant embedded into a neighborhood not use much landmass and be environmentally friendly and user-friendly all at the same time? One system aims to do all of the above. Why should a wastewater treatment plant always have to look like, well, a wastewater treatment plant?  A visual trip through project files of Aqueonics Inc., based in Greenville, SC, reveals photos ...
